Adding Salal Leaves

Salal leaves have a rounder shape and are usually a brighter green than the ruscus.  It gives a nice contrast to the other greens.  One full grower's bunch is enough to accent several bouquets, corsages and boutonniere.

Called "salal tips" - the individual leaves rather spiral around a center stem

They are easy to cut into different sections while still leaving enough of a stem to insert into the wet florist foam.

It doesn't take many leaves to have a decide effect on the look of this greened cascade.

Scatter some salal all around the bouquet design,  Don't forget looking from the lateral (side) view frequently as you build your bouquet.

Another salal leaf at the top adds to filling out the look.

I decided to insert a tri-leaf section of ruscus right in the direct center of the bouquet holder.

You can see how the different textures and subtle changes of color really adds character to the look of a greenery bouquet.
